Individual young people join in summer voyages along the west coast of British Columbia and southern Alaska.

Bursaries are provided for those who cannot afford the full program cost. We partner with numerous other community organizations to provide bursaries to young people from challenging life situations (cognitive disabilities, at-risk, cancer recovery, recent immigrants, etc). People of all ages can participate in Day Sails by registering online. Our mission is to develop the spiritual, relational, and physical potential of young people through sail training, shipboard life, and associated activities in a Christian environment. We welcome young people (age 13-25) from all walks of life as participants in our programs.
